Any good guess at which Tillandsia these are? Thanks if you can help.

The top one is T. 'xerographica'. The second one is a Cryptanthus. Maybe C. bivattatus 'Pink Starlight'?

Thanks Tee. At what point is a suggested ID sufficient to add something to the data base. Probably hard to answer.

You could propose it and see what Dave thinks. T. xero is in the database and yours would be great added to that. The Cryptanthus I'm not 100% certain on the ID (about 75%) because the coloration can vary so much on that plant. But no one seems to be offering an alternative suggestion. Big Grin
